i think the loveliest style for any woman is a french braid. but you can also perhaps do a chignon. my hair is incredibly straight with no wave at all -- but a very simple chignon, if you care to try it.
get a LOT of bobbypins. the big ones from sally's are best -- called Roller Pins -- pull your hair back into a ponytail just above the nape of your neck. hold the mass in one hand and rwist it twice. stop twisting, start pinning and continue to wrap the rest of the hair around in the same direction, pinning and pinning. at the end, tuck ALL hairs underneath and make sure they're well secured.
then hairspray just a bit. voila.
all the best.
